Auld Reekie Guest House, Edinburgh
A wonderful Edinburgh welcome and experience.
I recommend Auld Reekie very highly. The owner Rhona is a delight, an absolute natural as a guest house owner, who could not be more helpful and friendly. She and the spectacular breakfast offered make a wonderful start to every day. The house is a lovely Edinburgh villa, beautifully maintained. It's located just outside the city centre in a very residential area but is very well served by many local buses, which seemed to arrive at least every three minutes or so, headed towards Princes St and Edinburgh's many attractions.

We had a great stay at the Aulde Reekie Guest House. The room was lovely and clean with fabulous black out blinds on the window. The area is nice and quiet, an easy half hour walk into the Royal Mile. Breakfast was great and the hostess Rhona was wonderful. The twin bed would have been suitable for a young child and the water pressure in the shower was not great. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed out stay. A wonderful start to our holiday in Scotland.
